During the crucial decade of the 1950s in Egypt, both Gamal Abdel Nasser and the idea of Arab nationalism were assuming more and more influence in Egypt and the greater Arab world. Exploring this phenomenon, James Jankowski also offers important insights into the political context in which Nasser maneuvered. Jankowski focuses on the period from the 1952 Revolution in Egypt to the dissolution of the short-lived union of Egypt and Syria in 1961 - and on the outlook and actions of Nasser, the dominant figure in Egypt's new revolutionary regime. Concisely and convincingly, he identifies the unique blend of ideological and practical considerations that led Egypt to a progressively deeper involvement in Arab nationalism. He draws on newly available materials from the U.S. and British archives and on the memoir literature now available in Arabic to present a detailed reconstruction of this formative period in Egyptian political history. Jankowski traces Egypt's - and Nasser's - movement from a peripheral to a central position in Arab nationalist politics.

This book explores the emergence of an anarchic states-system in the twentieth-century Arab world. Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Arab nationalist movements first considered establishing a unified regional arrangement to take the empire's place and present a common front to outside powers. But over time different Arab leaderships abandoned this project and instead adopted policies characteristic of self-interested, territorially limited states. In his explanation of this phenomenon, the author shifts attention away from older debates about the origins and development of Arab nationalism and analyzes instead how different nationalist leaderships changed the ways that they carried on diplomatic and strategic relations. He situates this shift in the context of influential sociological theories of state formation, while showing how labor movements and other forms of popular mobilization shaped the origins of the regional states-system.

Syrien blickt im 20. Jahrhundert auf eine bewegte Geschichte zurück: von einem faszinierenden arabisch-osmanischen Kulturmosaik bis in das Zeitalter von 9/11. Usahma Darrah schildert kundig diese Entwicklung: wie die junge parlamentarische Republik Syrien nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg durch innere Richtungskämpfe und externe Zugkräfte zu Fall gebracht wurde. Wie Hafez Al-Asad den Baathstaat von einem Mittel des Klassenkampfs zum Machtapparat im Dienste der Staatsraison umformte. Sein politisches Erbe verwischt bis heute die Grenzen zwischen Republik und Monarchie - eine der Ursachen für den heutigen Konflikt. Besonderer Fokus liegt auch auf der Innen- und Außenpolitik des Bashar Al-Asad (2000-2007): geopolitische Gefahren, ökonomische Öffnung und die Unterdrückung einer erwachten Zivilgesellschaft. Eine anschauliche Darstellung, bei der zahlreiche Syrer zu Wort kommen: Offizielle, Kritiker und Zeitzeugen.

Philip Schäfer präsentiert Perspektiven der arabischen Mittelmeerstaaten, wie diese Sicherheit konzeptualisieren und wie diese Konstruktion das Verhältnis zu anderen Akteuren, im Speziellen zur Europäischen Union, beeinflusst. Er analysiert, inwiefern Regierende die Bedürfnisse der von ihnen Regierten, neue Bedrohungen und Gefahren wahrnehmen und wie sich angesichts von Veränderungen ihre Problemlösungsansätze und Machtpositionen legitimieren. Basierend auf systemtheoretischen Überlegungen untersucht der Autor den arabischen Sicherheitsdiskurs mit besonderem Fokus auf Ägypten und rückt dabei die Verbindung von Sicherheitsperspektiven und Identität in den Mittelpunkt. Diese Fragen sind die Grundlage, um politische Prozesse innerhalb der arabischen Mittelmeerstaaten zu verstehen, die angesichts der Herausforderungen von Migration, Ressourcensicherheit, internationalem Terrorismus etc. für die Außenpolitik der Europäischen Union immer wichtiger werden.
